The reason why medical marijuana has been legalized in 33 states across America is that it has undeniable health benefits. The main source of these benefits however, is the lesser known ingredient of the plant we call CBD. CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has a soothing and calming effect on our bodies without triggering the intoxicating ‘high’ that’s usually associated with cannabis products and medication.
So let’s find out why CBD edibles are good for you!
It Won’t Get You High!
As mentioned above, CBD is a non-sedative component of the cannabis plant. Therefore, CBD edibles will help you relax without inducing a high. This is great for people who’re looking for a calming and stress-relief medication but don’t want their inhibitions lowered. When you consume CBD edibles, the only thing you’re high on is the deliciousness of the treat!
Snack + Medicine
The greatest advantage of consuming CBD edibles is that you won’t even know you’re on medication. With edibles like chocolate bars and gummy bears, medication time is always snack time! In fact most of these snacks are high on protein and fatty acids that hemp oil has to offer, so really, it’s the best way to treat your taste buds and your body!
Destigmatizes Marijuana Consumption
Even though it’s 2019, and you’re using marijuana for medical purposes, there’ll still be people judging you for your consumption of the drug. Thankfully, CBD edibles protect you by shedding the ‘stoner’ stereotypes and help promote medical marijuana in a positive light. This won’t only help you consume your prescribed dose without feeling like you’re being judged, but will also allow you to go out and talk about it!
CBD edibles are a fun way of treating chronic pain. This is great for people suffering from terminal diseases like cancer. CBD edibles help manage the excruciating pain that follows the treatment sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as well as help prevent their side-effects, like nausea and vomiting.
